Everyone has their own hobby or activity, an interest of sorts, that makes them unique. Dance has always been mine. From the moment I could walk I was already dancing everywhere I went. I had to practice most days of the week, have my own practices at home, and attend recitals on the weekends. So many of my hours were given up to dancing that people would often ask, do you truly enjoy it? Aren't you tired of it? My answer has always been and will always be no. To me dance has never been a burden, but rather a passion that has shaped me into the person I am today. I love to dance because it's not only a physical activity, but a mental one as well. Through dance I'm able to clear my head and truly think about things without letting anything else take over.
From my first time on stage, I felt a sense of freedom and expression that I had not experienced before. From that point on, dance has made such a significant impact on my life. Dance has contributed in a huge way to all of your achievements so far in life such as education, transitioning from childhood to adulthood, interpersonal relationships, etc. as it taught me dedication, perseverance, discipline, and teamwork. All of these are essential life skills. I believe all these characteristics with be the reason for a successful career in dance.
Throughout my life I have never really been interested in the dance until last year where I started to accept it. why? Why do we put ourselves through the physical stress to call ourselves dancers? Why do we love it so? I simply found those answers when I started dancing as I saw the potential it gave, showed the importance of teamwork, and the courage it taught.

Since my sophomore year in high school I have been a part of a very unique dance group. This group is known as Alma Folklorica de Oklahoma, which translates to Fokloric soul of Oklahoma. We are a dance group that performs traditional dances from the country of Mexico. In my hometown there is strong Hispanic population, but more predominantly from Mexico. It first started as a community group, but eventually it became a school program. When it began people in the community still were apprehensive of newcomers in the community, mostly to the new coming Hispanic population. It began as a transitional program, mostly to show the beautiful culture of the newcomers. After a couple of years it eventually became a high school class. In the early years of it as a class at the high
On Wednesday, November 18th, I had the pleasure to attend and watch the Dance Plus’s Fall show. The Dance Plus was performed at the Douglass Theatre, Victoria Mastrobuno Theater. When I entered the show the theatre seemed a little small for such big crowed. I immediately thought there would not be enough seats for all the audience, but somehow it fitted everyone. As everyone got settled down, the dance performance had started. I chose to write about the first performance that was choreographed by the amazing director, Jessica Lange her work was simply wonderful! I loved every little piece of the play. It put a smile on my face watching this amazing work of art. So with that said, I would now like to talk about the dance performance. There were
The first dance performance I will be analyzing is “Don’t Fall Asleep”. There were dark red lights coming from the top before the dance began. Overall, there were fifteen dancers. There were many different props such as a bed with blankets on top that were rolling around on stage. Also, there was an acorn head that one of the dancers wore on top of his head. The music in the background was “Sweet dreams (Are Made of This)”. When watching this performance and the movement from the dancers, the story line in my opinion was there was a girl who was trying to sleep but she kept being awaken by these dreams. Her body language, jumping in and out of bed, running around basically made you aware that she was looking or running from something. The surrounding
Li was the sixth of 7 brothers, born into poverty in the Li Commune near the city of Qingdao in the Shandong province of the People's Republic of China. He often had to support his extremely poor family. Li's early life coincided with Mao Zedong's rule over the new Communist nation. Li had a strong desire to serve China's Communist Party. He was quite politically devout, eventually joining in the CCP's Youth League. At the age of eleven, he was selected by Madame Mao's cultural advisors to attend the Beijing Dance Academy, where students endured 16-hour-a-day training. He attended the Academy for seven years. The regime in Beijing Dance was harsh, starting each morning at 5:30. Li performed well in the politics class, but did badly in ballet. This changed when he met

Whenever I walk into the dance studio at my high school, there is always a certain smell. There is always a slight smell of sweat, passion and a hint of baby powder. Sweat for working hard, passion for loving what they are doing and baby powder to help with turning.
Anyone who has heard of “Dance Moms,” would look at someone who says, “I’ve grown up in a dance studio," with horror. I’m here to prove that sentiment wrong. When I was eight, I enrolled in my first dance class at Buffa’s Dance Studio. Nine years later, the studio director offered me a job. This opportunity soon became much more than a typical high school part time job. I worked side by side with the studio owner; each year registering 500+ dancers for their annual classes, order thousands of costumes and producing six recitals, complete with lighting, sound, and special effects. Although not realizing it at the time, she had offered me much more than a job. It was there I would spend my summer days and nights, working with and learning
I enjoyed reading your post especially your example of modifying your dance program. You mentioned that helping to teach the family and caregivers to maintain the same expectations and boundaries that have been set while in a clinical setting will help to ensure that the ABA technique will be maintained.
